A loan of $500 helped to buy chicks, feed, and vaccines for her poultry.


Rutendo's story

Rutendo is a 21-year-old businesswoman. She is single and lives in the Shurugwi District of Zimbabwe. She is currently successfully rearing broiler chickens in batches of 25 birds every six weeks. She was encouraged by other Cama (Camfed’s alumni network) members to venture into business so that she could look after herself. Rutendo volunteers as a Community Health Trainer in schools within the community disseminating heath information. With the requested loan, Rutendo intends to buy chicks, feed, and vaccines so that she can produce more broiler chickens in that same six-week period. This will enable her to improve her sales and profit levels. With the additional profits, she will be able to provide for herself and her siblings.
